Our hotel info:

In Cinque Terre we stayed at Borgo di Campi in Riomaggiore, of which one can see a sign along the road,
only when you come from La Spezia. It is like a small village of rented houses, very charming, with view on the sea.
We expected to be in the village itself, but it was quite a distance from it, impossible to walk, specially in the hot of July.
I would not recommend this stay in July or August, it is perpendicular to the sun and very hot, and you always have to do all those steps!
The website proclaims the appartments are airconditioned, but that's with a small apparatus and it works only from 6 PM.
You cannot drive to the village because the parking places there are all private. The only possible connection is with a little bus,
the green bus, at some few hours, of which you get the list at the reception. It was not to trust, the afternoon bus drived on a
totally different hour then indicated! We did found a very charming stay in the small village of Volastra (see on the photos).
If we ever would go back, we should choose that one: Hotel Il Araceno. There are only seven appartments, so you have to reservate very early!

The visit at Damanhur is not cheap, but when you do it, you will understand why, you get a personal guide and taxi.
Every artist should see it at least one time in his life!
Also everyone who is busy with spiritual things in some way.
